Listen to her voice, I think this woman has much to teach us be we man or woman. The first thing she teaches is to Engage. To be a writer, we must dive into life. Get burned if necessary. To quote Muriel, we must “Breathe-in experience, breathe-out poetry.” There is no place for disinterest and detachment in our lives..
